Wellness & Preventive Care

Annual wellness exams evaluate your pet's overall health, detect problems before they become serious, and keep them on track to live a long, healthy life.


The Waukesha veterinarians and staff at Prairie Animal Hospital understand your pet is an important family member. We are a highly compassionate veterinary clinic providing the most thorough care available for all stages of your pet's life. We take a proactive approach to pet wellness with preventative pet care services, detection and treatment of pet diseases, and full medical care throughout your pet’s lifetime. The American Animal Hospital Association recommends that your pet have a wellness exam at least once every year. As your pet ages, they recommend having even more. We believe strongly in preventive care and have developed wellness protocols for every stage of the life of your pet. Depending on your pet’s life stage, vaccines may be administered, as well as disease screenings.

Why are wellness exams important?

Wellness exams give us a chance to evaluate the overall health of your pet, while also giving us a baseline for their own unique bodies and tendencies. They also allow us to detect potential problems before they become serious. They even make your pet more familiar with our veterinary hospital, making future visits easier on them and you.

When should my pet visit the vet?

We believe in preventative medicine as the best approach to keeping our patients healthy. This includes annual wellness examinations, vaccinations on a one or three year basis, external and internal parasite prevention, and dietary management. Our doctors will help determine what vaccinations are appropriate according to you and your pet’s needs. We will discuss in detail what your options are to help you make the best possible health decisions for your pet.
